We Dig Dirt- A Closer Look

Hello Everyone,
A second look at our soil unit...We wanted to take an even closer look at soil today, so we made paper slides for the microscope using index cards, a paper punch, clear tape, soil, and sand. When placing a piece of tape over the hole in the card, and pressing the sticky side of the card down on to soil, we were able to capture a sample to put under the microscope. First graders are really good at capturing soil! We had an amazing time really "seeing" dirt close up! We recorded our observations and added the recording sheet to our science journals, which are getting very full!!!

Joyfully,
